Sixty-first Meeting of the CITES Standing Committee
On Tuesday morning, Standing Committee participants reconvened to discuss financing options, including access to Global Environmental Facility funds, CITES and livelihoods, capacity building, the policy on the use of the CITES logo, and a proposal to expand awarding certificate of commendation to CITES scientific and management authorities. On CITES and livelihoods, the Standing Committee listed improvements to the timetable and greater participation in the working group on livelihoods.

During the lunch break, TRAFFIC hosted a side event on the Wildlife Trade Tracker.

In the afternoon, the Standing Committee tackled cooperation with other organizations, including with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO). The Secretariat presented a draft umbrella agreement with FAO to expand cooperation in the area of forestry.

The Standing Committee then discussed progress in national laws for the implementation of the Convention and possible compliance measures for countries which do not submit legislation by the next meeting of the Standing Committee; national reports and review of the guidelines for the preparation and submission of annual reports; ranching operations; and a proposal by the European Union (EU) on the implementation of CITES provisions relating to captive-bred and ranched specimens.
